    can't see how this lushly cheesy balearic lounge exotica could fail to brighten somebody's day.

    not sure i can go straight into Soused after this though.

    This was a big hit with Miniboss yesterday.
    He's just put out a "Winter" sketches 7":



    not found it floating about yet but you can hear both sides on Dr. Rob's (of the Test Pressing website) recent FM Karuizawa shows:

    Test Pressing Japan / The Remedy / #191 / Dr Rob by Test Pressing on Mixcloud



    Test Pressing Japan / Remedy #198 / Dr Rob by Test Pressing on Mixcloud





    He does a nice line in Balearic/Exotica/Funk/Downtempo

    I'm really late to the party, but damn, Pallbearer really elevated their game on this stellar 2014 next level doom masterpiece.  It's WAAAAAAY better than Sorrow and Extinction and is probably my favorite 2014 doom release.  Just truly crushing, epic, intricate and beautiful.

    I actually thought it was a huge disappointment in that it replicates Sorrow and Extinction without breaking new ground for them. I gave it about 8 listens and gave up.

    The production is what does it for me.  So many guitar tracks, there's so much going on, it's just so ENORMOUS.  I mean, SAE had the same guitar tones, but had a very fuzzed out, narrow production envelope.  This is so much more expansive and soaring.  I also think he really matured as a vocalist and took a lot of risks as far as really honing his range and his delivery as a singer, and there are also a lot more vocal harmonies.  It gets bogged down a tiny bit in the middle, but those first few tracks are stunning.  I just love how "World's Apart" starts out as standard Sabbath-inspired doom and then slows down to this ponderous, ever-shifting elegy, with modulation that is so imperceptible that you don't even realize that the song has completely evolved into something thunderously new.  And the Floyd-esque coda after the reverb-drenched bridge in "Foundations" is so wonderfully beautiful, like Earth meets Alcest.

    Maybe give it a couple more tries, on good headphones and then on a big set of speakers.  It definitely took me a while to truly appreciate this one, but I can't get enough of it now.

    Another enjoyable thing about the new Pallbearer is all of the loving tribute to proggy 70's AOR giants like Kansas and Rainbow.

    Did any of my Bluntheads check out this previously unreleased EP?



    I'm really enjoying it. Would also like to hear whatever Joanne Robertson has worked on without him. She was so good when I saw him live!
